I bought Ableton Live 8 for Christmas, and I love it. I had the Ableton Suite 30 day- trial before that. It's great for beginners (they do a great job of explaining how things work) and it's just fun to use.

If I would have known this, I would have just shelled out the extra $200 and bought Suite. So again, this is a great product and I'd recommend it anyone, regardless of skill level. But to me, it only feels like half a product because of all the features I can't use (namely Operator and Analog). [...] <-- Here's a more... detailed page about it.
